    The GNU/Linux name controversy

    If Stallman et al really wanted to "take control", they'd get Hurd working (ahem...for very large values of "working") and then slowly curb their userland base to make use of Hurd-specific functionality.

    Kinda like 99% of the Linux community is doing to BSD nowadays.

    The GNU/Linux name controversy

    I think Lignux is a cool acronym and it's suggested by GNU website as you can see:

    The problem with “GNU/Linux” is that it is too long. How about recommending a shorter name? (#long)
    For a while we tried the name “LiGNUx”, which combines the words “GNU” and “Linux”. The reaction was very bad. People accept “GNU/Linux” much better.

    I wonder why the community didn't accept it.
